Information collected may include your name, e-mail address, street address, job title, society membership, or other related demographic information.

The ARC Knowledge Project website uses cookies to enhance site navigation. Some pages may not function properly if a site visitor's Web browser is set to reject cookies.

Collecting Information on Members

By necessity, the ARC Knowledge Project collects contact information on its members, including, but not limited to, name, address, telephone numbers, fax number, and e-mail address. This information is requested on the membership forms. The ARC Knowledge Project does not use any technique to collect information on its members beyond that which they freely provide us.

Collecting Information on Website Visitors

The ARC Knowledge Project does not use any technique to collect information on its website visitors beyond that which they freely provide us. Please be aware, however, that when any website is visited, the Web browser provides information about the connection and browsing program. We sometimes read some of this information, especially on pages with occasional malfunctions that have not yet been fully diagnosed, to see if we can find ways to make the website more functional and reliable. The ARC Knowledge Project does not use cookies or any other technology to monitor which pages an individual visits on our website

Online Credit Card Transactions

As a convenience to members and advertisers, the ARC Knowledge Project accepts online credit card transactions. The credit card information provided by users at our site is processed by PayPal, the e-commerce provider with which the ARC Knowledge Project has contracted to process the secure electronic transactions. Credit card information is not saved on the ARC Knowledge Project website or in ARC Knowledge Project databases. After the payment is processed, we get a transaction code from PayPal, but we only have access to the first and last four digits of the credit card number. The payment information collected is not used for any purpose other than to process the single authorized and recurring payment.

Secure Websites

Credit card and other sensitive information should be submitted via the Internet only on a secure website. You can confirm that a site is secure by noting that the URL (Web address) begins with "https://" rather than just "http://" and by looking for the locked padlock at the bottom of the screen. (An unlocked padlock or an absent padlock indicates that the page is not secure.) Secure pages are necessary only when transmitting sensitive information, such as credit card numbers; you should not be concerned that ordinary pages are not secure.

Other Sites

The ARC Knowledge Project website contains links to other websites. The ARC Knowledge Project has no control over, and no responsibility for, the privacy practices or content of such websites.

Discussion Forums

Users who participate in ARC Knowledge Project online forums or discussions may have their messages or postings edited for size and/or content. Submissions to such forums explicitly grant such editorial rights to ARC Knowledge Project staff who reserve the right to remove inappropriate submissions. By participating in an online forum or discussion, you consent to our use or disclosure of any content you submit.


Opinions herein are those of the authors solely and do not reflect the views of the Board of JENDA, and Africa Resource Center.
